Powers of Attorney

A lasting power of attorney (LPA) is a legal document in which a person gives a trusted friend or family member (may be more than one person) the right to make decisions on their behalf when they cannot do that themselves. An LPA can be taken out at any time of your life, so long as you have mental capacity.

There are two types of LPA; health and welfare and property and financial affairs.

  • A health and welfare attorney can make, decisions about your day to day life, medical treatments, and provide help to improve your quality of life.
  • A property and financial affairs attorney can make decisions about things like money, tax, bills, property, pensions and investments.

The LPA is a very important legal document and we would recommend seeking professional legal advice when thinking about creating one. Only the person who is making an LPA needs to be present for these discussions.

If you would like to discuss taking out an LPA our experienced team will take the time to understand your individual needs and explain how it can help you.

We can help with:
  • Health and welfare LPAs
